APC debutants to steer FullGas Pulsar in Sydney
The FullGas Racing Nissan Pulsar will be the chariot for APC debutants Brianna Wilson and Nathan Stephens this weekend at the Tyreright Sydney Challenge.
The Pulsar was piloted at the Hi-Tec Oils Bathust 6 Hour in 2016 by Dimitri Agathos and James Duckworth, in a class winning performance.
Brianna Wilson a past karting champion and a regular in the one make Pulsar Racing Series, is teamed up this weekend with experienced racer Nathan Stephens and the pair are looking forward to the challenge.
“The car is being run by the FullGas Racing, a team with vast experience so it takes some pressure off and I can just get on with the job of driving,” Brianna said.
“The aim of course will be a class win but with 4 hours of racing ahead of us I’m not underestimating the task at hand. It will be the longest motor race I’ve entered and the first time sharing a drive.”
“I’m stepping in a guest driver this weekend and am excited about teaming up with the teenage speedster,” Nathan said.
“I have been working with Bri this year helping her transform those karting skills into motor racing skills and I’ve got to say she has exceeded my expectations in that time.”
Also racing under FullGas Racing colours this weekend will be the FullGas Racing Subaru WRX STI, with Dimitri Agathos and Lachlan Gibbons to steer the Class A1 entry this weekend for the four x one hour races.
“FullGas Racing is a Sydney-based family team and we are very thankful for the support of a number of great supporters, including supported employment program Nova Employment which works exclusively with people with disability or other significant barriers to work,” Agathos said.
“We are greatly looking forward to having two Nova-supported pit crew assistants on board this weekend as we look to bring home both the Subaru and the Pulsar in strong positions in their respective classes.
“We also need to thank Hogs Breath Café (North Paramatta and Castle Hill restaurants), with Jeff Cassar, Daniel Bailey and crew supporting me since I was only ten and racing go karts!
“Thanks also goes to leading performance suspension manufacturer Whiteline and also premium lubricating oils company Castrol Australia who are another long-time supporter starting from the go-kart days.
